A Chocolate Is Born...

Happy Birthday to us! Cocoa Tree Cafe and the @pittenweemchoco is 11 years old. And to celebrate, we want to give you a gift!

A brand new, oats-so-scrumptious #chocolate is joining the family. Our newest creation is filled with one of #Scotland’s favourite ingredients…perfectly sweet, nourishing and creamy #oats. Now, we just need to choose a name for this chocolate treat.

So, if you’d like to taste the latest choc-oat-late to join our clan, please help celebrate our birthday by sharing this post AND leaving a comment with your suggested name. If your idea is chosen, we’ll send you a sample - along with £11 worth of scrumptious chocolate treats! We’ll announce our #winner after the celebrations have subsided…

Meanwhile, we’d like to #THANKYOU, our loyal and supportive Cocoa Tree family for helping to make the last 11 years so sweet!

Now, anyone for a slice of cake?

The Voice Of...Selling Peace

We’re trying to sell peace, like a product, you know, and sell it like people sell soap or soft drinks. And it’s the only way to get people aware that peace is possible, and it isn’t just inevitable to have violence. – John Lennon

Produce your own dream. If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It’s quite possible to do anything, but not if you put it on the leaders and the parking meters. Don’t expect Carter or Reagan or – John Lennon or Yoko Ono or Bob Dylan or Jesus Christ to come and do it for you. You have to do it yourself. – John Lennon

You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one. – John Lennon

The Voice Of...Stephen Hawking

For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. 
Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. 
We learned to talk and we learned to listen. 
Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. 
Mankind’s greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn’t have to be like this. 
Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. 
With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. 
All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.” 
– Stephen Hawking, 8/3/1942 to 14/3/2018
